Shorting MTBC shares

There are currently 357,431 MTBC shares held short by investors – that's known as MTBC's "short interest". This figure is 12% down from 406,207 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting MTBC shares can be evaluated.

MTBC's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

MTBC's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of MTBC shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of MTBC shares traded daily (recently around 122407.87671233). MTBC's SIR currently stands at 2.92. In other words for every 100,000 MTBC shares traded daily on the market, roughly 2920 shares are currently held short.

However MTBC's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of MTBC shares, or, against the total number of tradable MTBC shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case MTBC's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 MTBC shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0479% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable MTBC shares, roughly 48 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against MTBC.
